Essential Items For RV Camping
While some of the items featured in this list are negotiable subject to your preferences and personal travel style, there some RV parts, devices and camping supplies that are essential for your trailer and should be at the top of any first time RV owner’s checklist.
1. Extra Portable Water
Even if you plan to park only at camping resorts with utility hookups, it’s always advisable to keep a supply of drinking water on board.
2. Portable Water Hose
To avoid any unwanted flavors or funky odors getting into the freshwater supply, it’s essential to invest in a certified portable RV water hose.
3. Sewer Hose And Hose Supports
In order to empty the wastewater tanks in your RV safely, you need the right equipment. This means you need a sturdy sewer hose, and, if you plan to use sewer hookups, you also need supports to ensure everything flows and pipe connections don’t disconnect.
4. Leveling Blocks
Unless you have one of those ultra-modern RVs with integrated automatic leveling systems, leveling blocks are essential. Without leveling blocks, you will find yourself sleeping on a slant and it will be difficult to cook.
5. RV-Friendly Toilet Paper
Using conventional toilet paper in an RV toilet can quickly clog up the delicate sewer system causing a lot of mess and some potentially costly repairs. Therefore, RV-friendly toilet paper is a must.

You need RV toilet chemicals to break down solid waste and minimize odors in the blackwater holding tank.
